What to Avoid When Starting an Etiquette School for Children

What to Avoid When Starting an Etiquette School for Children

The number one thing you can choose to avoid is OVERWHELM!

Starting this type of business is actually easier than most. 

A BIG ADVANTAGE of starting a business teaching manners to children is the cost. The cost of launching this type of business is relatively inexpensive compared to others.

There is no overhead.  What I mean by this is you do not need a space (brick and mortar) to start teaching nor do you need to purchase or manufacture inventory.

To get started, you need a comprehensive curriculum and a go getter attitude. 

Overwhelm keeps you stuck.

Clarity comes with starting the process. We all learn by doing.

Elegance for the Soon-To-Be Etiquette Expert

Elegance for the Soon-To-Be Etiquette Expert

Let’s dive deep into this one.  Elegance may not be exactly what you think.

I will start off this way….this is what elegance is NOT…

Elegance is NOT a stuffy, judgmental, pretentious display of high society and a snobby mindset.

So, what is an elegant state of mind?

Ahh… now this is what I like to ponder and observe.

I would like to offer my experience and observation on elegance because I have been studying this for a very long time.

Let’s go to the positive side of ELEGANCE.

Elegance stems from the latin word elegantia (sounds lovely). It means taste and refinement.

Here are my observations and notes so far on elegance:

Elegance is not about having a lot of money but is a mindset.  To have a mindset of elegance you must be hyper-aware.

This type of mindset is kind and refined.  It is not about judgement but inclusion.   Being mindfully elegant is about speaking and making eye-contact daily with everyone.

Elegance is dressing the part and being true to yourself.  If you choose to be the most well-dressed in the room, then own it. You do not have to pull yourself back to join in with the crowd.

Elegance is about being polished in your own style, posture and your manner with others. How you treat yourself and others matter.  

Handle yourself with dignity and self-respect always.  Trust me, you will feel better.

Elegance is about being selective and choosing quality over quantity everyday.

Elegance is showing an interest in others.

Elegance is knowing who you can trust. 

Elegance is choosing not to spew your troubles into the world.  Remember, to be selective.

Elegance is walking into a room or the grocery store knowing your value.

Elegance is embodying GRACE, GRIT and GUMPTION! (by the way, click here to  read our article on this topic)

I am so curious….what is your experience with elegance?

Manners and Etiquette Certification: Start Before You Are Ready

Manners and Etiquette Certification: Start Before You are Ready

Today’s article is about you.  It is about overcoming the doubt.  It is that voice in your head that is telling you, you are are not ready.

How many times have you started something before you are ready?

I have.  Actually, I started the Manners To Go certification before I was ready.  That’s right.  The many requests added up.  Finally, one day a potential licensee called to inquire.  And the rest is history.  

I licensed her before the program/curriculum was ready.  

Sometimes, we all need a little nudge every now and then.

That one nudge was life changing for me. 

Think about something you have been wanting to do.  What would happen if you said yes to it?

Life is so much more exhilarating and rich when you are participating and not standing on the sidelines watching everyone else have fun.

Come join in!

Trust me, this journey is rewarding in many ways.  Yes, you get to share a part of yourself….but it is more than that.  

Owning a business gives you freedom.

A Business Teaching Manners to Children: Creating and Cultivating During Challenging Times

Creating and Cultivating During Challenging Times

A current licensee and I were exchanging emails last week.  She is a great example of what is possible.

Here is what she is doing right now in her etiquette business:

  • Teaching and offering private manners and etiquette instruction for families
  • Teaching programs for non-profits via Zoom
  • AND wait for it….started a blog!  She has a beautiful spirit and so much joy and peace to offer to all of us.  Of all the things that are on this list, this one excites me the most for her.

Take out a piece of paper or an app on your phone and see what ideas you have right now.  Let your mind go free.  What would you do without any limitations?

Take one of your ideas and act on it.

We are in different times.  Now is the time to be creative.  You can still create during challenging times.

You can also cultivate your current connections.

What are your connections doing?  How can you help them?  How are teachers in your community handling their current situation?

Do they need an outsider to assist them via Zoom to add important content?  Do their students need a special guest next Friday?

Ask!  You will never know unless you ask.

We are here to help you achieve big results so that you can make a difference with youth AND build a business that you absolutely love.

Start with the best.  Check out our website and see how other licensees have gotten a fast start using our system.  We have videos of other licensee’s being interviewed about their new business.  At the end of this article, you will find the videos in the Links and Resources section.

Teach Manners: Whose Life is Different Because of You

Teach Manners: Whose Life is Different Because of You?

This is an interesting question, isn’t it?  

For the purpose of this article, let’s think of it in terms of making a difference in the lives of children.  

If you have a passion to teach manners, life skills and character to children, then I bet you have many stories to tell…stories of lives that you have touched in one way or another.

We all have stories to tell. 

I have taught thousands of children over the years.  One story that stands out for me is the time I was teaching a group of elementary aged children.  

A few days later, a parent calls to let me know her child’s teacher commented on the marked difference she noticed in her daughters’s eye contact. 

Another time was a memory from an afternoon tea and table manners program.  This tea was very special as the entire program was donated for a local charter school.  It was for a classroom of 4th grade girls.

Many of the students had never held a real teacup before…not to mention a finder sandwich or scone.

This was a very special day and one that I will never forget.

Etiquette Expert: What To Do When the News Media Calls

Etiquette Expert: What To Do When the News Media Calls

Last week, as I was winding down after a long day of writing content my phone rang.

I did not recognize the number.  It was a bit late….the “work” day here on the east coast was over.

I hesitated because I was relaxing on our comfortable sofa with my sweet miniature pincher.  My husband was also close by.

I was ready to ponder what type of salad I was going to prepare for dinner.

Back to the phone ringing….I answered it.

The call was from a reporter with Fox News 29 in Philadelphia.

She had a story to tell.  The reporter needed advice for her viewers…the story was hot and she needed an etiquette expert to provide guidance…and rather quickly.

The reporter needed me to be on a video call in an hour.

She asked if I was available and ready.

I bet you know my answer.  

Of course, I was ready! And I seized the opportunity.

The story ran the same night on the 10 pm news. The link is at the bottom of this article if you would like to watch the segment.

As an Etiquette Expert, What Do You Need to Know When You Are Asked to Be On the Local News or Media

1. Reporters need someone who is confident and camera ready. Often times, you may not have time to prepare. In this case, the reporter called at 6 pm.  I was on the video call at 7 pm.  The same day.  I had an hour to gather my thoughts, apply lipstick, get dressed and set up my camera!

2.Ask questions during the initial call.  Will this be an extensive interview or sound bites?  

3.If you have time to research, understand the news channels’ target audience.

4.Deliver a concise message.  Make notes.  Brainstorm all of the questions that might be asked during the interview.  Answer them.  Anticipate the questions and craft your answers in 7-15 second answers.  Remember to answer the question. This is not the time to be verbose.  You want to be neutral, natural but direct.

5.Practice in the mirror. Practice with a spouse or friend. 

6.Prepare today as if you will be on camera soon.  You need a video camera (linking to one here; the best $79 I spent for my etiquette business) and a light ring.  These are easy to find on Amazon and makes a BIG difference.  You will not regret purchasing these items.

Relax and be yourself.  You offer a great deal of value to the world.
